Bibendum
Last resting place of the Plantagenets, the abbey of Fontevraud remains (despite numerous mutilations) one of France's most important monastic sites. Don't miss the vast 12C church and the Plantagenet tombs in its chancel, the 16C wall paintings in the chapter house of the Ste-Marie cloister, the 12C St Benoît's Chapel and the amazing Romanesque kitchen. Since 1975, the abbey has been a residential centre for creatives, bringing life to the site (concerts, exhibitions...).

    Pros

    Site remarquable. Expo d'art moderne au cœur des bâtiments très surprenante.

    Cons

    Visite guidée en sus. Visite libre avec livret d'accueil inutile car sans explication. Il manque des dessins ou reconstitutions 3D du site à ses différentes périodes d'occupation.
